When creating an aquarium environment suitable for your fish and corals, you have to pay attention to every detail to make sure that you end up with an accurate recreation of the natural sea environment. Even something as simple as sand to be placed on the base of the aquarium is a detail you need to attend to. You can't just get sand from the shore of a beach and dump it in your tank. What you need is the Caribsea Arag Alive Fiji Pink from Pet Store
This prepacked sand contains a wide spectrum of beneficial bacteria that can be found in the bottom of the ocean. These good bacteria help stimulate the growth of marine creatures. Aside from that, specially selected marine bacteria strains are also added to this prepacked sand, so it's even better than the real thing!
Aside from the aforementioned benefits, the Caribsea Arag Alive Fiji also prevents the first ammonia spike that usually comes with a new tank. Remember that excess ammonia in tanks can lead to the growth of parasitic algae, so the less ammonia, the better. This prepacked sand also prepares the aquarium for the addition of invertebrates and live rocks. You can add them immediately after you put in the sand. Then, the fish and other aquatic creatures can be added in the first three weeks. By his time, the sand has fully integrated itself in the aquarium
environment and thus has made it more natural and livable.
Best of all, the Caribsea Arag Alive Fiji Pink is in a soft pink hue, which makes it quite an attractive aesthetic addition to any aquarium.
This soft pink colored, 100% aragonite substrate is a good intermediate sand size product. The precise 0.5 - 1.5mm grain size combines some of the animal friendly properties of fine sand such as ingestability and low resistance to burrowing, but with better diffusive flux properties and good porosity. This is also the standard choice for reef aquariums at 1 pound per gallon.
